Working From Home as a Result of Coronavirus Pandemic?

Working From Home as a Result of Coronavirus Pandemic

In the United States and many parts of the world, people are locked down and are working from home as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. It is important to ensure you protect yourself and others while you are locked down and working from home. Keep reading to learn more.

Tip #1: Wash Your Hands Regularly with Soap and Water

One of the effective ways to cut back the coronavirus infection risk is to wash hands regularly with water and soap. Preferably, you should wash your hands with warm water using soap.

To ensure thorough hand washing, you should adopt a certain pattern. When you take drops of soap in your palms, ensure you rub your hands for about 30 seconds to form lather. Wash thoroughly and ensure you scrub your nail areas as well. Place your hands under warm running water to rinse them. Do these while you sing happy birthday song twice.

According to WHO, do not just rub your hands palm to palm, you should interlock and interlace your fingers in different manners, so that you can reach every surface. Dry your hands with paper towel and use same to turn off the tap before disposing it in a closed bin.

Washing your hands becomes even more important when you go out and come in contact with frequently touched surfaces (e.g. door handles) or people. Make sure that every member of your family observes these hygiene practices to ward off Covid-19. If you feel you may forget to wash your hands as often as required, make sure you have a hand sanitizer handy. The sanitizer must contain 95 percent or slightly less alcohol. Alcohol should not exceed 95 percent or it will not be effective.

Tip #2: Avoid Touching the Sensitive Parts

Also, it is helpful to avoid touching sensitive parts with your hands. These parts of your body include your nose, eyes, and mouth. If you accidentally touch surfaces (e.g. counter top or doorknob) that have been infected with the virus, it becomes highly risky to touch these sensitive parts of your body. If you have your hand sanitizer nearby, you should apply it on your hands and rub thoroughly after coming in contact with surfaces. Otherwise, wash your hands as soon as possible.

Tip #3: Try to Stay Away from People Who May Have the Virus

If someone around you is coughing or sneezing, do not linger around such people. Common symptoms of this respiratory infection include sneezing and coughing. These activities are risk factors as they release droplets that carry the virus. While other ailments may come with such symptoms, it’s better to stay away to be on a safer side. Also, stay away from those who have been around individuals with such symptoms or sick people.

Finally, social distancing is a good way to prevent and minimize the spread of the virus.
